          Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Eye Cream:

          I wish I would've known about mineral oil before I purchased this. I used up the entire thing before realizing that this product contains mineral oil. Mineral oil is made from petroleum which can clog pores and cause small white bumps to occur on the skin. Most people are saying this doesn't absorb and that's why. It just sits on your skin and does nothing. Be smart and read ingredients. Don't purchase because it's a "good value". You're paying for a filler product, essentially.

                  I have been using this for a few years now and while I don't think it's totally effective at attacking the aging process around your eyes, it is a really wonderful, thick eye cream. Some people find it greasy but I love that a little bit goes a long way and it keeps my eyes super hydrated during the night. The skin is very soft when I wake up.

                    I have been using this nightly for the past week, so I can't say much about long term results, but so far I am very happy with my purchase. First of all, it's a great value for an eye cream with glycolic acid. I think it will last a very long time because you only need a tiny amount each time. It may feel very thick and greasy after you apply it, but in my experience it all absorbs by the time you wake up in the morning. The eye looks very moisturized and refreshed the next day. I definitely would not use this is the morning because it needs time to absorb and it would be very hard to apply makeup over it. I think this is just as good as any $60+ eye cream, fair price without compromising performance and high quality ingredients.

                          A:

                          Products containing Glycolic Acid are frequently used in anti-aging skin care regimens. To help prevent the early signs of aging, some people will start to use glycolic products in their 20's. That being said, the exact usage is very specific to the product that the glycolic acid is contained in. Our Glycolic Eye Cream is a thick, rich eye cream designed for more mature, dry skin.

                          Traditionally, Glycolic Eye Cream is recommended for mature, dry skin.
                          At your age, there are better options. Ceramide Eye Gel (Item #: 2209755) is our ideal "starter eye cream". If you are on the drier side or prefer a cream-based eye cream, we offer the Ceramide Herbal Eye Cream (Item #: 2209754). If you are looking for a step-up from the ceramides, we do offer our customer favorite - Hyaluronic Eye Cream (Item #: 2209798).

                          In general, we don't recommend applying eye creams to your eyelid. Applying eye creams to your eyelid will increase the chances of the product getting into your eye and causing irritation.

                          While the Glycolic Eye Cream offers the intense moisture that you need, some do experience a sensitivity to glycolic acid. If you are sensitive to glycolic acid, Chamomile Eye Cream may be a better option for you.
